ATi 5xxx HD gfx card 1gb ram
Intel i7 quadcore
So far Windows 8 is awesome for me... The only problem I am having is the top and bottom edge of my screen flickers like crazy! I didn't have this issue on Windows 7. Some apps don't do it, and some do it only at certain times. For instance, as I type this my Desktop top and bottom edges are flickering but when I exit it stops. Windows 8 native apps do it almost all the time.
I have updated my graphics driver and... well... I'm not sure what else I can do to make this stop! I can provide video on youtube of what it looks like if needed...
When I hold down a key for the "repeat" function the screen flickers with the repeat rate. In other apps it flickers randomly.
If I pull this hard drive and go back to Windows 7 I have no problems.
